I've joined the Sisterhood!

No, I'm not talking about traveling pants or a religious order :), but I have joined the "Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers". It seems that I am joining all kinds of things lately, but I am making up for some lost time... Anyhow, the "Sisterhood" is a community of crafty ladies, sharing ideas and a love for all things beautiful that can be made with our hands. Each SBS group is limited to twenty women and I have just 'enlisted' in SBS Group 23. I have been ogling the goings on in other SBS groups for a while now and decided to take the plunge and can't wait for the fun to begin! Be sure to check out the work of the talented people in our group listed in the right hand column of my blog.

Please bear with me as I introduce myself to my new friends:
My name is Kristin and I have been wanting to join an SBS group for some time now...I have a great love for all things crafty, but am just now at this juncture of my life finding the time to enjoy some of the things I love. I think it is more that I am now making the time, otherwise it wouldn't happen. I love to scrapbook and stamping is quickly becoming a favorite medium in the things I do. In the past, I would buy supplies with grand intentions and never get around to scrapping! I quit working a year ago in October and the more I adjust to my redefined role at home, the more I enjoy being able to create and work on those stacks of pictures that seem to be endless....I look forward to SBS being a motivator and reminder for me to take some time out for myself and get busy!

I started my blog as more of a way to stay in touch with friends, have an outlet for my thoughts and share a little bit of myself. It is very much a work in progress. To this point I have not used it to display much of my layouts, etc. but that will be changing! I love seeing the creativity on everyone's blogs!

I live on the currently VERY hot U.S. west coast with my husband and three beautiful little girls. Although we are in the desert, I am a beach girl at heart. From the time my husband and I began dating 11 years ago, we have escaped the desert and spent as much time at the beach as possible....any beach :). Give us a few days off and we are there!

I have have just signed up as a Close To My Heart consultant (another thing I just joined:)) and I mean just - the stuff is still in the box! My starter kit arrived as we were leaving for (you guessed it), the beach. So stay tuned for the fun I can't wait to have with my new CTMH products!

I look forward to getting to know all of you!

Hello Kristin, I'm one of your sisters, pleased to meet you. I hope it will not be long before we become firm friends.

You sound just like me, buying stash with good intentions. I have been doing that for years LOL. With any luck my blog will grow as I brag about all the new and exciting things I'll be doing with my new sisterhood.
